In celebration of Boeing’s 100th birthday we want to remind those reveling at a distance from the men and women on the shop floor to not forget those who have dedicated years of service to reach this historic milestone. No company could be as world-renowned as Boeing without a hard-working, dedicated and skilled front-line work force.
“Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.” – Lincoln’s First Annual Message to Congress, December 3, 1861.
The labor of those who work with their hands have provided for many within the company for decades. Those who toil at Boeing are the driving factor in the company’s success and should be recognized for the hard work they do.
To those who clock in day in and day out, we thank you.
The BSC workers don’t share the same success that Boeing offers. Success is defined by quality of life. BSC workers continue to have lower wages, inconsistent work rules and higher health care costs than their counter parts on the 787 program.
